Hannah Hyman took a study break from her classes at DePaul University to accept the 2019 Patrick S. Botterman Leadership Award May 18 from the Wheeling Township Democrats as a rising star. While a senior at Schaumburg High School, Hyman orchestrated her campaign for trustee of Schaumburg Township District Library, explained U.S. Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, 8th District, in his introduction. She turned 18 two days before candidate petitions were due, so on her birthday she filed to be a candidate, then spent the next two days -- during a snowstorm -- to collect the requisite signatures. THEN she went on to win a seat on the library board in April 2017. Now she commutes from her dorm in Chicago to Library Board meetings.
Tell Jonathan Carroll to Support the Fair Tax--Then Take Action! Call!! Email!! Witness slips!! Town Hall!!!
State Rep. Jonathan Carroll (D-57th) is uncommitted on the Fair Tax (SJRCA1). The Democrats are so, so close to getting the votes they need in the House. (The bill already passed the Senate.) But Republicans are flooding Carroll with calls and TV commercials opposing the Fair Tax. We don't have their money but we have YOU--the Blue Wave of Activism! Call Rep. Carroll at (847) 229-5499 AND email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell him this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to repair our regressive, outdated tax structure. If you live in his district, say so. If you don't please call and email him anyway. The 57th District has the upper northeast corner of Palatine Township, then meanders through Arlington Heights and Mount Prospect to Northbrook.
THEN TAKE ACTION! File witness slips and attend Tuesday's Arlington Heights Town Hall with Daniel Biss! We can do it!
Witness slip: our side is running half of what the anti-Fair Taxxers have filed--file as a Proponent here.
Show the Illinois House that we need a Fair Tax in Illinois!
